Your Neighborhood

The Marmalade district is a thriving diverse community.

The Marmalade Historic District is authentic urban Salt Lake City living. Its roots are firmly planted as downtown’s original working class neighborhood. Stability, diversity and a genuine sense of community continue as hallmarks of this proud and prosperous enclave.

Convenient Urban Location

The Grove at Marmalade is nestled into the gentle uphill side of the much anticipated Marmalade Branch Library, which opened in March 2016. Just north of the downtown core and Central Business District, it’s just a few blocks from City Creek Center and many other shopping, dining and entertainment options. Leave the car parked in your private garage and walk, ride your bike or take a city bus to almost any downtown destination within a few minutes.


Marmalade Neighborhood RDAThe Marmalade district often poses a unique paradox to people moving here, particularly those from communities well beyond Utah’s border. The contradiction is found in how much more inclusive and accepting the culture is than many anticipate before arriving.

Thriving Downtown

The common theme is that “Utah’s Secret is out!” The phrase typically refers to our spectacular outdoor activities, reasonable cost of living, and the State’s above average employment rate. But the real story here is how many threads of diversity are alive and well in The Marmalade and downtown Salt Lake City in general.

Salt Lake City Nightlife & Entertainment

Why not live where you work and play?

With a home at The Grove, the fun and excitement of the urban nightlife is right in your own backyard. Salt Lake’s pre-eminent alternative live theater is a block away at Salt Lake Acting Company. Venture a few blocks south to experience all that urban Salt Lake City has to offer. Sporting events, concerts, fantastic restaurants, night clubs, art galleries and more are just minutes away.


The Marmalade district’s roots provide the foundation of the area’s unique blend of clean living mixed in with a rebellious nature. Downtown’s cultural fabric reflects this unique energy.
